What to Bring

We don't need to remind you to bring an open mind, energy or a positive attitude, but here are a few more things you will need for CI:

  1. Alarm Clock.
  2. GWID, NetID, and password.
  3. Your completed GW First Class information and any other academic information/scores for your meeting with your advisor.
  4. A laptop (if you own one!) for course registration on Day 3 of summer CI sessions (students attending Fall CI will register for courses before attending Fall CI). Don't forget to bring copies of your proposed schedules, too!
  5. Completed Immunization Form (which must be received by Student Health by August 1st).
  6. Two forms of identification, including one US Government issued photo ID (driver's license, passport, etc.) for your GWorld Card.
  7. Documentation of any AP or IB scores or grades from previous institutions, as well as a copy of your unofficial transcript.
  8. Comfortable clothing and shoes (CI is casual, but we've got a lot in store for you, so make sure you have some comfortable clothes for your CI experience).
  9. Sunscreen and sunglasses.
  10. Rain jacket and/or umbrella (note: D.C. summers tend to be hot and humid with brief rain showers).
  11. Spending money (all meals are included for students, but we have many excursions into the city during CI).
  12. If you're attending our summer sessions, we’ll provide the sheets and pillows for your stay on campus, but don’t forget your toiletries and a blanket! You’ll pick up your room key when you check in with us in the morning of Day 1.
  13. If you're attending our Fall or Spring sessions, you will be moving into your academic year housing assignment prior to CI, so don’t forget your own blankets and pillows.
